Inter Milan vs AC Milan, Coppa Italia 26.01.2021
With just two points separating them at the summit of the Serie A, these old rivals meet in at their common San Siro stadium for their second Derby della Madonnina of this season in the quarter-final of the Coppa Italia.
Both needed extra time in their previous round matches. Read on to get our betting predictions for this round.
Inter Milan have been excellent for the most part this season but they have let multiple opportunities to supplant their rivals from the top of table slip by in recent weeks. They still remain second on the log, two points off the pace. They probably had their minds on this clash as they were held to a goalless draw on Saturday at Udinese.
This was quite disappointing for the fans especially coming immediately after they had put up a masterclass to defeat champions Juventus 2-0 in the previous gameweek.
With no champions league commitments on the horizon, Inter may well look to this cup as a possible backup should they fall short in the race for the Scudetto and we expect a more engaged approach to this tie from Antonio Conte’s side.
AC Milan have taken the league by storm this season. They had a terrific start to the season and looked invincible for long stretches. Even in Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s prolonged absence due to injury or illness, they still found ways to get wins. They lead the league halfway through the season but it remains to be seen if they can sustain this challenge all the way to the end.
There have been some chinks in their armour particularly in the last few weeks. They lost 3-1 at home to champions Juventus and although they bounced against Torino, they were once again badly exposed at the weekend in the 3-0 loss to Atalanta in the own backyard.
Injuries have been a key part of these recent setbacks. Stefano Pioli will need to work hard to navigate through these and re-instill the sense of belief they started the season so brightly with.

INTER MILAN VS AC MILAN BETTING TIPS
Being a derby, we are expecting nothing short of an intense and absorbing encounter. Both teams have come from disappointing results and will be looking at this game as the one to give them a jolt for the remainder of the season. We expect a tight derby match that may very well head into extra time or even trigger the drama of penalties to separate the two sides. Overall, Inter has dominated this fixture in recent years and based on the current state of injuries and performances, look to have a slight edge over their neighbors at the moment. We, therefore, feel an inclination to pick Inter to qualify @ 1.55 with 22Bet.
AC Milan have come up short against strong opposition in their recent matches. Their understrength side will be on the backfoot for the majority of the match and that might mean they will have to do a lot of work to contain a marauding Inter team. This fixture has tended to produce a lot of bookings and this will be no different. We are predicting AC Milan will get the lion’s share of these bookings @ 1.96 with 22Bet bookie review as our final call.
